    Digital Media Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Hiring process was pretty standard. Had the screening call, panel call, and then onsite interview. However the process seemed rushed- as they said they needed to fill the position immediately. (This turned out not to be the case. See below.)

    The onsite interview went really well from both my perspective and the validation from the recruiter after the onsite. The outlook of the digital marketing department seemed to be in the air given the acquisition but the employees I spoke with seemed somewhat optimistic.

    Now, you are wondering why I had a negative experience? Everything about the interview process itself went exceptionally well up until the follow-up by the recruiter. After the onsite I was told that I was a “top” candidate but to this day I have never heard a definite “yes” or “no” as far as next steps. In fact, I have followed up several times and all that has been said is that they have no further direction at this time about hiring for the position. It has been over three months since my final interview so I am assuming they are no longer hiring at all for this position. It is extremely confusing for someone to be told they are in the final consideration yet never get any additional update. It is safe to say I was definitely not treated like a top candidate in this process. Please, respect the time and energy set aside by candidates to give them updates. Especially candidates that take time to come for final interviews.
